During the summer term, Year 4 have been learning about castles and dragons. On Friday 19th June, we visited Cardiff castle to watch the amazing joust event. We had a fantastic time :)
Our topic this term is The Tudors. We have been looking at the different monarchs as well as discussing Henry VIII and his 6 wives. In Art, we looked at different types of flags from all over the world and discussed the use/ need for flags. This then led us to look at Tudor flags.
Mrs James gave us a brief: Design a Tudor flag which must include the Tudor Rose and only the colours white and red.
We designed 4 different flags and then chose our favourite one to make below. Some of us used paint and others used tissue paper.
In Science, we have been learning about mini beasts and their different habitats.
We visited Cogmoors and did some fantastic activities. We went on a mini beast hunt, completed a water challenge and went pond dipping. It was great fun!
Rounding up and down
In Maths, we have been learning how to round numbers up and down. We have been looking very closely at the units number to help us decide UP or DOWN?
